LONDON(ICIS)--Czech producer Spolchemie has started its second perchloroethylene (perc) production campaign following the first one which ran from 26 September-4 October, a company source said on Tuesday.
Previously, the company said it will gauge demand levels at the end of October before deciding how long the production campaign will last.
The source confirmed it had restarted its 15,000 tonne/year perc plant in Usti nad Labem on Monday this week and the campaign will run until 3 November.
“We will run [our plant] for two weeks,” the source said. “The demand levels are more or less in line with our expectations.”
The company had originally planned a single campaign in October but split production to two separate cycles due to minor technical issues.
Other European perc producers include Dow Chemical, Solvay and Anwil.By: Stefan Naidu+44 208 652 3214
